Walsall is a thriving historic town which caters for workers, students, residents and visitors of all ages. There is no shortage of shopping, eateries, activities or nightlife given its status as the largest industrial town in the West Midlands.
Walsall’s Waterways please residents and workers
Whilst Saddlers Shopping Centre is the social hub of Walsall’s community, Walsall Canal is fast becoming a big attraction since it has been revived, cleaned up and the environment improved, making it a picturesque spot for local people. The once-derelict Walsall Town Wharf has been re-developed, and now has an acclaimed art gallery. There are moorings for boaters from which to access to the town’s attractions, including the Leather Museum, Walsall Arboretum – a restored Victorian park of over 80 acres – and the Jerome K Jerome Birthplace Museum (a C19 English writer, best known for the comic travelogue of Three Men in a Boat).
For nature lovers, walking enthusiasts and cyclists, the canals in Walsall are part of a network of routes connecting the town centre to the surrounding countryside. Given its strategic location 8 miles north-west of Birmingham and 6 miles east of Wolverhampton and job creation among its 270,000 population – partly driven by re-development projects including Walsall Manor Hospital (£174million), Walsall College (£65m), Waterfront South (£60m) and St Matthew’s Quarter (£25m) – Walsall requires new homes to facilitate its rising local population.
